Cel, this is a "breed specific" thread, as opposed to "Breeds and Mixes", or "Health". While Dakota is lovely, and a wonderful dog, he is clearly not a purebred Lab.
He is unique and one of a kind, in the most delightful way.
I will leave your comment as it is important for people to know that dogs can be allergic to fleas. I swear fleas bite some humans more than others, which I don't know if that constitutes an allergy to them or we just taste better.
Allergies, and broad conversations relating to those issues, should really be in the Health Section as they are surely not limited to Labs in particular.
